Some boarding school in the country including Chinhoyi High and St Augustine, have banned parents and guardians from bringing food items to the institutions as a preventive measure against cholera. However most parents are refusing to accept this, saying they should not ban all food items. A guardian, Mavis Jochore, who was not allowed to hand over food to her son at Chinhoyi High by the security officer, said: “The school authorities should choose the type of food to be brought inside the school the school premises,  not to impose a blanket ban as some food stuffs are dry and sealed. The school headmaster, Sevious Mutopa,  refused to comment, referring all questions to Makonde district education office.
